Masterpiece: Many architects also have an affinity with TV's above fireplaces.

In our new build we added dedicated room, which could double as a formal lounge...not.

 

So wrong. The TV's placed too high to begin with ...

That's what she said?

 

 

Yep, she said it dominates the room.

 

 

Nearly fell off my chair, thanks for the laugh :p

architects and the home decorating/designer folks are deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to av equipment.

Not to mention the AV companies' marketing departments. I've seen an ad for a surround sound system with all the speakers clustered around the TV!

Front heights and front wides are both completely viable speaker arrangements in a surround sound setup...

Bah, 55" isn't tiny, just small. My 32" seemed huge when I got it but now it feels tiny in comparison to my 105" home theatre... tongue-out

 

 

I remember spending $3.5k on my 29" CRT Panasonic in the late 80's - it was HUGE, the first movie I watched was Lost Boys, it was just like being in the cinema!

 

Then Philips bought out a 32" 16:9 CRT, even better than my Panny, I so wanted one. It was HUGE!

 

My Panasonic TH 42PV500 at a mere $5.7k replaced my 29" CRT. When it was pulled out of the box, I could't comprehend how big it was. I watched the first entire season of Sopranos on the first night. It was just like being at the cinema!

 

Shortly after, I auditioned a 50" NEC plamsa, my ultimate dream - but at a mere $12k (reduced in price from $17k) it was just too rich in price, so I could only dream.

 

And yesterday I took possession of my new Sony 55".

 

And it's tiny!

 

How times change.

 

 

I remember my Sony $3500 34" Gorgeous. But for you, the percentage difference in real estate from a 55 to 65 is huge.

Ah women. If I can do math: 65 = huge 55 = tiny ... get her a 60"

A guy I worked with had no Mrs... but a 40" Mitsubishi CRT....

 

I was blown away, especially after paying $1000 for my Samsung(IIRC?) 29" and my Yamaha amp, and a DVD player that cost me $800 (in Oz in the late 90's)

I have often though our 65" VT Panasonic is a bit big. Should it pass from this world we will probably down size the screen a little.

 

 

Bigger is better IF the res is a great experience. If it was and its too big, a curtain etc might normalise the living room.
